AUGUSTOUR (Italian Green Road Award 2015) is a cycling holiday event in northern Italy and takes place at the end of May: you will ride with a guided group through the beautiful region of South Tyrol and Trentino, ending after 3 days in Verona. During the 3 stages all partecipants of the AUGUSTOUR will cross, sitting on a their bike, along a part of the marvellous – and excellent cycling route, called "Via Claudia Augusta", the ancient cultural and trade passage of the Roman Empire. Amusement and pleasure to ride along the event's track are the main purposes of it all, standing right in the foreground. All cyclists follow their own rhythm, ride in a guided group, with no stress! Start is in Bolzano, stage towns are Trento, Rovereto and Verona. The next edition of the AUGUSTOUR will take place in May, from 24th to 26th, 2019.
During the stages we make some gastronomical and cultural stops (in collaboration with FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano) in a castle or a tipical "palazzo" along the bike route; on day 1 we visit of the center of Trento with the beautiful duomo. FAI is a private non-profit organisation with 60,000 members. Its purpose is to protect elements of Italy's physical heritage which might otherwise be lost. During the ride we offer also very special refreshment points with local goodies. The visit of a local winery and an exklusive dinner ("Notte Verde") will be other highlights.
You can take also advantage of our luggage transport and, if you decide not to come with your own bike, use our bike rental service. A special bus brings you after the 3 stages to the start. Finally, register for the event booking our "All Inclusive – Package" wich inlcudes partecipation, accommodations in Hotels, daily luggage transfer and several other useful services.
